The rest of the world can no longer call soccer ‘football’ after the fascinating Rams vs. Chiefs MNF showdown on November 19. Call it footie or legball or what-have-you, but we have staked our flag in football, at least for the moment.
The Rams edged out the Chiefs, 54-51, who became the first NFL team to ever score 50 points and lose. Teams to score 50 points in NFL history were 216-0 entering tonight. Other fun facts from the game:
- There were more TD’s scored in that game (14) then the Buffalo Bills have scored all year (13).
- At halftime, the score was 23-23, the first time that halftime score was ever recorded in NFL history.
- The 63-point over was the highest over ever on an NFL game. It eclipsed that by the third quarter.
Metrics aside, take a dive into the sounds and energy of the game with this amazing clip posted by the Los Angeles Rams Twitter account. CHILLS CITY!
I watched this video while I was in the bathroom stall and nearly fist-bumped the dude pooping next to me. That would have been weird. Glad I didn’t.
UPDATE: Please disregard everything I just said. It was actually a shitty game, per Trent Dilfer. Carry on.
